Varied Thrush

Ixoreus naevius

Did you see a robin in your backyard that didn't quite look right? It could be a Varied Thrush, a relative to the American Robin that breeds in mature forests in the Cascades and Olympics and winters in the lowlands. Check out its unique song.

Bottle Beach State Park

Pacific Northwest Coast

The extensive mudflats of Bottle Beach State Park provide ample habitat for fall shorebirds, including Black-bellied Plovers, Whimbrels, Marbled Godwits, and both species of dowitchers. The best viewing time is one hour before or after high tide, when shorebirds are concentrated closest to shore. Be sure to check out the brambles near the boardwalk for migrating or wintering passerines.
